A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on October 22

Iran Front Page- IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Sunday, October 22, and picked headlines from 16 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Several newspapers today covered the important remarks by Seyyed Abbas Araqchi, the Iranian deputy foreign minister and former nuclear negotiator, in his address to Moscow Non-Proliferation Conference. Araqchi said if the nuclear deal fails, the NPT will also fail. This seems to imply that Iran will stop implementing NPT if the other side violates the JCPOA.

Another top story was President Hassan Rouhani’s picks for ministries of energy and science, who were proposed to the Parliament and will be vetted within the coming week. Reformists in recent days expressed great dissatisfaction with Rouhani’s decision to propose Mansour Gholami as the science minister, describing him as a politician close to conservatives. This is while Gholami claims to be a reformist, and conservatives believe that he is close to reformists, while being a logical option for the post.

A number of papers also highlighted the remarks made by First Vice-President Es’haq Jahangiri about the presence of American companies in Iran. Jahangiri stressed that there is no limit for their presence in Iranian economy, and it is the US administration that deprives their commercial firms from doing business with the Islamic Republic.

The above issues, as well as many more, are highlighted in the following headlines and top stories:
